resting and vacationing with the
people who chose to stay or came
to visit.
Summer in Ann Arbor - this
summer - was four months of
watching, a period of observing the
in-between stages of change. The
West Physics building is gone;
those who were here saw it in the
process of becoming gone.

had agreed on a final plan for
revisions in college blueprints
which restored $350,000 in cuts
proposed earlier. The plans then
went to the Regents for their fin-
al approval.
And then on June 10th,, the
University's legislative appropria-
tion was announced: $57.9 million,
a figure $1 million above Gover-
nor Romney's recommendation but
still substantially below the orig-

Fall Program To Take .

200-300 Freshmen,
Selected Randomly
This fall 200 to 300 Ohio State
University freshmen will enter a
program similar to the University's
Pilot Project.
"The program is designed to
create for the students the best
of both worlds," said John W.
Gustad, associate dean of the Col-
lege of Arts and Sciences which
sponsors the program.
The experiment will combine
the intimate student-faculty and
intra-student relationships of a
private liberal arts college with
the research facilities of a large
The students will live separated
from the rest of the university
and have frequent discussion ses-
sions like those in the University's,
Gustad stressed that the proj-
ect was not an honors program.
He said the students were chosen
at random from a cross section of
the freshmen, unlike Pilot Proj -
ect students who volunteer for the
Three Criteria
Three criteria were used for
the final selection of the fresh-
men for the project:
-The capability of the student
to earn a predicted grade point
average of 1.7 for the first year,
-Candidacy for the bachelor of
arts degree, and
-Campus residence - all OSU
freshmen do not live in dorms.
Four Courses
The students will take four fresh-
man courses separate from the
rest of the university's freshmen:
English, philosophy, arts survey
and history. Individual student
consultation will be offered in the
history course.
Gustad pointed out that the pro-
gram-like the University's - will
last only through the freshman
year because by the sophomore
year the students' interests will
be too diverse to permit 'common
course selections.
Gustad plans to visit the Uni-
versity and Michigan State Uni-
versity to study the Pilot Project
and the two Residential Colleges-;
MSU plans a Residential College
for non-agricultural students.
Gustad said many students
"realize the program's advan-
tages." He said one student who
had been accepted at a private
eastern college decided to enroll
at Ohio State - her alternate
choice--when she was invited to
participate in the experiment.

PASADENA, CALIF-A DELICATE pirouette in space, fol-
lowed by a gentle "kick," put America's Lunar Orbiter spacecraft
on a near-perfect path to the moon last night, with no more
corrections needed.
All it needs for a perfect path, scientists said, is one more
tiny nudge, but they decided to let the shiny craft glide toward
the moon without further acrobatics.
Orbiter is designed to make low-altitude photos of terrain on
the moon-where American astronauts may land-as it swings
low over the lunar surface in an egg-shaped orbit.

CHICAGO-A RAGGED LINE of more than 500 civil rights
demonstrators marched through an all-white Southwest Side
neighborhood of Chicago last night while about 1,000 white
onlookers chanted, "nigger, nigger, nigger."
About 600 policemen protected the demonstrators, and there'
was little violence as the marchers moved into the Bogan area
for the first time. On girl, who said she had been hit with a
rock, was bleeding badly.
The march was another step in a civil rights campaign
against alleged housing discrimination.

Matt Meyer, president of the World Journal Tribune, said last
night that no decision had been made as yet on whether the
morning daily would be retained as part of the newspaper merger.
"I think we will be decided as to where we are going by the
first of the week," Meyer said.
The Washington Post said yesterday in a New York dis-
patch that serious consideration was being given to a final burial
of the Herald Tribune.
STANLEY NADEL, '66, RECEIVED a Congressional summons
yesterday requiring his appearance and testimony before the

A majority of the 13 others supeonaed to appear with him

Wednesday and Thursday of next week and will extend into the
following week.
The Fifth Avenue Parade Committee Against the War in
Viet Nam and Students for a Democratic Society have called for

The American Civil Liberties Union is providing lawyers for
the witnesses. A group of those supoenaed are attempting to ob-

Penn Faculty
Demand End
To Project
Threaten To Resign;
Say Research Institute
Aids Viet Nam War
A group of faculty members at
the University of Pennsylvania
have threatened to resign if the
school's Institute for Cooperative
Research is not abolished.
They charge the institute with
being involved with Department
of Defense projects dealing with
chemical and biological warfare
in a way that "threatens the uni-
versity's integrity as an institution
of learning."
This month's issue of Ramparts
Magazine charges Penn with using
the institute to. aid the war in
Viet Nam.
For this reason the faculty sen-
ate of the university voted last
December to abolish classified re-
search at the university.
Prof. Gabriel Kolko, spokesman
for the group, said yesterday that
the public report of the institute
indicates that chemical warfare
information researched there is
still being used "in a military con-
text in Viet Nam."
He said this is the reason for
his group's decision.
Correct Facts
Kolko said, "Despite the ar-
ticle's style, which we object to,
the facts are correct. I regret to
state that this is the case."
Ramparts made a similar charge
against Michigan StateUniversity
last spring. As a result of that
article the Legislature conducted
an investigation of the school's
activities in Viet Nam which was
subsequently dropped and two
members of MSU's faculty resign-
Kolko said he foresees a similar
reaction at Penn. He said the mat-
ter "will inevitably be brought to
the attention of the legislature
and half a dozen faculty members
have indicated that their resigna-
tions are in the cards unless the
university clears up this business."
He added that the university has
been unable to hire faculty as a
result of the incident. Similar re-
sults have been unofficially re-
ported from MSU.
Tight Spot
He said, "the university has got-
ten itself into a tight spot; it has
ruptured faculty relations, stu-
dents are demonstrating against
the adiministration and it is losing
its rapport with the university
body. This is a position which
most universities try to avoid."
The Ramparts article charged
that the main reason for continu-
ing the ICR is the university's
poor financial situation. Kolko
said discontinuing the ICR and its
defensive contracts would indeed
create a financial problem for the
university. He said last year the
legislature cut Penn's budget re-
quest by "$5 or 6 million and the
university stopped paying many
of its bills as a result."
Kolko said "it appears as if the
university is willing to keep its
defensive funds and ignore the fa-
culty." He added that "the faculty
should determine university func-
tions, direct its actions and should
therefore be heeded."
Donald Sheean, vice-president
for public relations at Penn, said

Special To The Daily{
DETROIT - Speaking at a
downtown Detroit press confer-
ence yesterday, U.S. Senator Ro-
: bert P. Griffin claimed that his
overt drive to capture the primary
supporters of Detroit Mayor Jer-
ome P. Cavanagh has yielded "very
good" results.
Griffin, who employed an inten-
sified two-day newspaper and ra-
dio advertising campaign to woo
Cavanagh supporters following his
loss to G. Mennen Williams in the
Aug. 2 primary, refused, however,
to name any prominent Cavanagh
people who have come to his
He did mention he would wel-

come such supporters as Ford Mo-
tor Co. chairman Henry Ford II
and Detroit Edison chairman Wal-
ter L. Sisler, but added he has not
formally approached either.
Sisler, who is also an ardent fol-
lower of Republican George Rom-
ney's bid for reelection to the gov-
ernorship, served as finance chair-
man for the Cavanagh campaign.
Cavanagh, who rebuffed Griffin
when the latter visited him elec-
tion night in search of support,
has remained silent about Grif-
fin's hunt for aid and comfort
from the mayor's partisans.
Williams Hit
Griffin criticized Williams, whc
he will face in the general election
Nov. 4, for his opponent's insis-
tence that Romney appear on a"
debate platform with his Demo-
cratic adversary, state chairman
Zolton Ferency, before the ex-
governor will accept Griffin's own
challenge for a debate.
Griffin wrote off the Williams
demand, asserting that the two
situations are "not parallel." He
said that "Romney has been gov-
ernor for four years and the peo-
ple know his position on the is-

whip Thomal R. Kuchel, also of
Calif., and Sen. Roman Haruska
of Nebraska to come to Michigan
and campaign in his behalf.
He has received definite com-
mitments from Murphy and Jav-
its and said the others will "prob-
ably" come.

Concurrently, in Washington,
Williams has issued invitations to
President Johnson, Vice-President
Humphrey and Sen. Robert F.
Kennedy of New York in order to
help in his campaign, his first
venture in the politics since he
stepped down from the governor-
ship in 1960.
